Help! Only have 2 more days to use up a Matches credit!
I have a credit at Matches which expires in two days, and am on the fence about how to spend it. Not crazy about many things out there, but am obsessed about this dress. What do you ladies think - worth the splurge, or something which I won't be able to wear more than one season. I'd love to get some perspective as I really am quite torn!
It's gorgeous but obscenely expensive for something so memorable imho. If I was paying that much (yeah right!), I'd want something that I could wear in a zillion different ways without everybody knowing I was wearing that same old dress again tbh.
No - the other thing which is holding me back, but I assume that returning the dress if it does not fit well would prolong the credit?
Remus, that is precisely why I have not pressed the purchase button - it really is something which is difficult to wear often for the same group. On the other hand, in a couple years, I could pull it out again and it would become a conversation piece?
I think that dress personifies the biggest problem I have with designer dresses - it looks like a dress that could be easily copied and looks very 'one season' and 'fashionable'. If it was hand painted and exquisitely made then maybe but it's not going to be for 900 quid.
There's some lovely DVF dresses on there for £350 - do you have enough of those?
Thank you for the suggestions santamarianovella. I have a wardrobe full of tasteful, classic dresses so was looking to get something different. Those dresses are fantastic - but not sure they would really suit me (at the the orange one wouldn't). I'm 5'2", early 40s, oriental, and slim.
